This may be a little over the top to qualify as a garlic bread, but it is the best thing of this kind I've ever had. Use about 16 cloves of garlic if you want the Parmesan cheese to share equal billing with the garlic; twice that if you want the garlic to take the lead. Choose bread that is crusty and fairly dense without being doughy. Depending on the size and shape of your loaf, you may want to cut it a tad longer or shorter as described in the recipe; just be sure the butter coats the bread in an even layer without any bare spots or thick patches. it's okay if the ends of the thin onion slices turn black during baking.
